Authorities and criminals rejoice

Australia has apparently decided that catching a handful of terrorists is worth sacrificing the privacy and security of all it's citizens. It's impossible to build a backdoor that only good guys can use, because the computer can't tell who the good guys are.

And because Australia is part of the Five Eyes intelligence alliance, it's not unreasonable to think similar legislation in Canada, the US, the UK, and New Zealand may now be a foregone conclusion.
